  1. Thanks again so at least I know I can put this into the second war department Frame i’ll post some more pictures when I get a bit further along had the crank fully rebuilt and I need to sort out a few repairs on the engine case and frame before I can go any further But at least I know now that it’s compatible with the frame
  2. Ok that’s interesting am I right in thinking it’s been fitted onto a 1943 or 1944 Frame ? As This is the engine I’m going to use for the second WD frame once I have sorted out the rest of parts and some repairs as for the frame hopefully will have that in a the few weeks it looks like it’s got the remains of the original number but won’t know until I cleaned it all up and had a good look thanks again for your help Ant
  3. Thanks Ron I will order a set before they run out
  4. Hi Ron do you think these will fit and look okay in chrome so have to get that removed but I think they are the same size just waiting to hear back from the dealer to confirm the size or I found these in black paint and 5 inches long but not certain on the shape is right or not ?
  5. Hi has Anybody got any information on this engine number I think it’s a 1943 to early 1944 but has no V prefix ? It’s not the best of stampings but from what I can work out it’s 166 and 4818 And it has The usual separate numbers stamped across the front 2257 already had the narrow type crank fully rebuilt for this one so just need to sort out the gearbox now Any help is appreciated Ant
  6. Thanks ron getting quite close to finishing the first one at least now I know exactly what I am looking for

    Hi Lex it’s now company policy for Hitchcock’s that no One can have access to them not to copy anyway that’s the downside however I’ve managed to get or borrow the last few parts I need so I can make copies of them

    Data Plate

    Most motorcycles will rebuild Depot or Chilwell as it was purpose-built for motorcycle rebuilds

    FV fighting vehicle we still use this but I’ve never seen it on motorcycle 🤓 not sure about TT will look into it see if I can find anything else you still use A one Basically means fit for all duties after a rebuild only ever seen stamped onto one engine block normally just on the paperwork
  15. Hi does anybody have any copies of the blueprints for a flying flea down to the last few parts unfortunately I can’t get hold of them So will have to see if I can make any help would be much appreciated
  16. Hi Lex Do you have the sizes for the repro handlebar grips for the Flying flea I’m going to have to get some made and have you managed to take any photos of the frame yet partway through second  crank so any parts i have spare I will put with the engine till we can sort something out

      Thanks, but it's a postwar manual. I haven't had the time to scan my handbooks, but do have the parts list scanned I believe.

      Cheers, Lex

  17. 😂 that’s fine we will sorting out when you get back hope you have a good time supposed be going back there next year
  18. Ok lex This is all I have spare at moment Locally it has all the different parts as regards to an early engine and WD Engine I.e. gear selector backing plate Found most of the full gearbox as well I may have a few narrow crank parts later on so I will put this back for a few weeks until we can sort something out
  19. Sam Lex has first go that’s if we can come to an arrangement about the engine for the frame as regards the parts still haven’t told me how much for the hub and whether you still have cable adjuster I might have in a week or two some brand-new old stock narrow crank parts but only conrods
  20. At the minute partway through rebuilding my 1944 Engine but I also have a second WD Engine to rebuild as soon as I’ve finished that one I will have a better idea of what I have left as regards the engine parts Also found somebody that has a few new old stock comrades for the narrow crank if you need any let me know Thanks Ant
  21. Hi Lex like I said before I would rather you had it to complete the bike specially considering there’s only a handful left and then all these have always been my favourite bike I consider myself lucky to have one very battered example I will post you some pictures later have had a good look at it it’s got most of the hard parts that are different to the later engines if you can send me some photos of the damaged WD Frame And let me know what number it is I’m sure we can sort something out what part of the country are you in as I’m moving about a lot and does the frame have forks with it if not do you have a left-hand side as I have almost a complete set thanks Ant
